Senior Jazz Reno Trip




The HIMS Senior Jazz Band will be traveling to the Reno Jazz Festival (at the University of Nevada, Reno).


About the Reno Jazz Festival (Click here for more info)


The HIMS Sr. Jazz Band has attended this festival for the past three years, and it has been a highlight for the whole band. At the festival, the jazz band and combo/s will play, students will participate in clinics, and everyone will get the opportunity to see (and compete with) elite middle- and high-school jazz bands from all over the western region. Last year, the Sr. Jazz Band took first place and had the highest score of any band at the festival.



Reno Jazz Festival Dates: April 25 - April 27, 2019

Student Travel Dates: Depart on Friday, April 26th and return to Seattle on Sunday, April 28th

Location of Festival: University of Nevada, Reno

Hotel: Circus Circus Reno (


Expected Family Cost (per student) / Payment

The expected cost for the Reno Jazz trip is approximately $500. Although FOMAHI contributes to offset costs to families, they cannot cover the entire cost. We will be collecting payment in two separate parts. 


The first payment of $250 is due on Friday, December 21. The balance will be due around February 2019 when we have a better idea of the final cost per student. Please make checks payable to FOMAHI and write "Sr Jazz Reno for [your student's name]" on the memo line. There will be an envelope in Mr. Harshman's room (labeled) if you want to send a check to school with your student. You can also leave the check in the FOMAHI mailbox in the Main Office. Please address the envelope to "Naria Santa Lucia for Sr Jazz Reno Trip" if you leave it in the FOMAHI mailbox.


Or click the button below and make sure to indicate the name of your student in the memo line.


If you have any questions about the trip, contact Naria Santa Lucia at or 206-459-9038.
